Dr Bautista is awesome. I couldn't handle my mental illness at this time without her having known me at my best & understanding my family life & everything.thanks!

This was an appointment to establish Dr. Bautista as my new pcp. She was very patient and accommodating, and took the time to go over my medical history with me so she could familiarize herself with my case, as well as answer any questions I had. A very good first appointment, I am definitely looking forward to working with her again in the future.

just keep up the good work.

I want to thank her for attend me immediately without waiting to long.

Ellen Buatista is great [...]

Always good and friendly

she was like a robot , very scripted and unnatural in her demeanor ... she spoke like she was reading from a text book

For the short time I have been there everything has gone extremely well

This is the only poor review I have left of anything in my entire life. I tried to continue going back to her to see if it would be any different, but it has been the same every time. She has always been halfway out the door during my appointment. She doesn't ask if I have questions, so I have to stop her from going out the door to ask questions I may have. She doesn't explain answers to the questions very well and when she's done explaining she is out the door again even if I might have another question. I also want to discuss the poor service of the nurse. She is always in a bad mood when I come in and seems very annoyed to answer any questions I might have, event if it is just where the lab is located.

She's wonderful [...]

The doctor will not listen to my concerns and even though I told her I could not make it to Portland to see a specialist, she referred me to offices in Portland and made no attempt to help me find somebody I could get to. [...]

Only been with this Dr for a short period of time but all has been great so far.

My experiences so far have been good.

Dr. Bautista is always attentive and listens well.

Lack of follow up. Lack of explanation when in visit room lack of knowing my needs

we're learning to communicate better

She I really like the care I get from Dr. Bautista. She has been the best Doctor I have had in regard to her knowledge about what ever condition I am seeing her for and has always listened to me and not made me feel like I was in a hurry and she always makes me feel like she truly does care about my health and that Im not just a number in the system. She always has given me her undivided time and I have total confidence in her. She has helped me so much when Ive been at some of the lowest times in my depression and I just truly appreciate the quality of care I get from everyone i come into contact with at her office. Even the people on the phone seem to really care. I always tell my family and friends how much I like my doctor and I have talked to mom about switching her doctor to Dr. Bautista [...]

I have no criticism of Dr. Bautista [...]

Dr. Bautista always listens to my concerns and needs and offers very helpful information. I always feel comfortable when seeing her and know I have the best care possible.
